Kevin Papineau was chosen by his peers as the president of the Galt Joint Union Elementary School District board of trustees. The appointment was made last week.
He replaces John Gordon, who served at board president for the past two years.
Wesley Cagle is board vice president and will preside over meetings when Papineau is absent. The board clerk is Grace Malson, who was elected to a two-year term last month.
New board member Matthew Giblin was sworn in at the Dec. 12 meeting. He replaces Susan Richardson who chose not to seek re-election after two four-year terms.
